Route
“IGNORE THE MAP PRINTED HERE. From our gates, turn left. Rathmichael Woods is 10 minutes on foot. The entrance is marked with a large wooden sign post. Historic features include the remains of a rath (hillfort) on the hilltop of Rathmichael overlooking Shankill. The rath was probably an important defended settlement in its day, and possibly a political centre of a local wealthy chieftain. On the lane up to Rathmichael Wood from Ferndale Road there's also a 12th century Fassore cross boundary marker (a short granite cross, with a simple crucifixion scene). Rathmichael Walk is an easy looped walk of 1.7km waymarked green. ”
